A man was found dead inside a red carpet in front of a Starbucks in Manhattan early Thursday, authorities say. The grim discovery was made outside the coffee shop at 145th Street and Frederick Douglass in Harlem just before 6 a.m., police said. A passerby walking in the area at the time called 911 after seeing feet or shoes sticking out of the rolled up carpet, authorities said. Officers responding to the call found the man clothed and unconscious inside it. According to law enforcement sources familiar with the case, the victim had a gunshot wound to the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and has not yet been identified.
